S.C. police move into the 21st Century

By GLENN SMITH
The (Charleston) Post and Courier

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Police officers filing reports from their cruisers. Computers matching similarities among crimes. Wireless cameras monitoring the streets. A Web site alerting citizens to crimes in their neighborhoods.

These are just a few of the innovations Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen hopes to bring to his department by year’s end. City Council already has approved money to fund some of the initiatives, and more plans are in the works.

Since taking over as the city’s top cop in late 2006, Mullen has made it a priority to improve the Police Department’s technological and analytical capabilities. The goal, he said, is to make the department more efficient, target resources where they are needed most and ensure officers on the street have timely access to the information they need to do their jobs.
